  4. Crowded City

    At 42,000 persons per square kilometer, the City of Manila is one of the most congested cities in the world. With little space to expand and more people migrating into the inner city, Manila only has to expand vertically, if not claim areas from the sea to feed of this continually growing population.

    Some say high density developments are good, but some say it’s bad. We can never tell, but both positions have their merits.

  5. Bantay Church and Bellfry

    Bantay, Ilocos Sur

    Bantay is a town adjacent to Vigan City, together with Vigan City it somehow forms a Metro Configuration with Vigan City since Vigan City has a strict development regulations regarding new constuctions owing to its World Heritage status, thus some developments have to be located in Bantay.

    Bantay has an interesting church, with a mix of baroque brickworks and neogothic details in the facade and as well as the main altar and the interiors. The church is dedicated to Nuestra Senora de Caridad, popular among locals as Apo Caridad.

    As for most Ilocos Churches with their belltower located a street from the church facade so it will not topple and destroy the facade, the belltower of Bantay Church is also located too far frm the main church atop a hill. The belltower also served. as a watchtower during the Revolution.

     
  6. I now confess, I made the Final Challenge for Juandering in Manila 2.0 Filipino Chinese Friendship Arch Station. Unlike the first Juandering that has 10 stations, now we have only 9 stations.

    I designed the final station challenge to be as time consuming (worth 2 stations): wide coverage area and hard challenge. But I think only 5 teams got this far.

    First Row: Art Noveau

    Second Row: Filipino Hispanic

    Third Row: Modern - COntemporary

  13. Whoa. For the government, it is still in pre-bidding stage, meaning it is still a long shot from implementation. But rest assured, when this one finally goes for bidding, surely MPIC and San Miguel will bid for the most ambitious infrastructure project ever.

    There is a big problem regarding where to align the project. The options are to align at at the Old PNR tracks or at the centers of the Expressways.

    My opinion will be develop the PNR Commuter Trains and the Bullet Train Tracks separately. In reality, the Commuter Trains we currently have compete with the buses and in actuality, the Bullet trains compete with Airplanes (Bullet Trains Fares are a bit cheaper than Airplane Fares)

    Expressways are better engineered than Highways so the Bullet Trains must follow the Expressways, from La Union to Bicol.

    The Bullet Train Project will completely seal the train interconnection of NAIA and Clark aside from the accessibility it will have via wheels though NLEx and SLEx What’s your two cents’ worth on this?
